Scouts in Bakewell learn about the police and effects of bullying
Main article content
A scout group in Bakewell had a special visit from their local PCSOs, who spoke to them about the work of the police in the community and the effects of bullying.
PCSOs Anthony Boswell and Ben Morris of the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team spent time talking about the topics with the group who meet at The Brigade Hall, on Bath Street, on Friday evenings.
They spoke about the work of our neighbourhood policing teams in the community and policing in general, and gave an overview of what bulling, how it could effect people and the possible consequences.
The visit took place before recent social distancing measures were brought in.
PCSO Boswell said: "It was great to go along and speak to the children, and our visit seemed to be very well received by the group. It was very interactive and they had many questions for us about both our work and the issue of bullying which we did our best to answer.
“Forging links with young people by visiting local groups and schools is important to us, as it helps us to build positive relations and encourages confidence in their local police.”
Our officers make regular visits to schools and community groups to help engage with all our local residents and different members of the community.
